Long before Robert Bird engineered the terraces that ribbon this steep, north facing vineyard in the north of Hawkes Bay at Bay View, early maori had established the settlement of Heipipi Pa atop the slope. Historical documents tell of its occupation for over 500 years and importance to the region. With its limestone soils, north facing aspect and frost free nature, this is a unique and stunning vineyard site, bearing the name of its earliest settlement.
